Description

  • The invention relates to a motor vehicle according to the preamble of claim 1 and to a method for displaying navigation instructions in a motor vehicle according to the preamble of claim 7.
  • In known navigation devices navigation arrows are only displayed on the display of the navigation device. The area occupied by the navigation arrows surface of the display can therefore not be used differently and reduces the remaining area of the display, which can be used for a different use.
  • The publication DE 20 2005 009 231 U1 relates to a computer rearview mirror and discloses a motor vehicle according to the preamble of claim 1 and a method for displaying navigation instructions in a motor vehicle according to the preamble of claim 7, this document describes a computer rearview mirror in the form of an interior mirror, the image display device in the form of a Includes LCD monitors and a GPS module and works as a GPS satellite navigation system. The interior mirror provides the functions "positioning" and "self-navigation". In the positioning function, by processing a satellite signal received from the GPS module, the internal system of the interior mirror accurately identifies the current location (altitude and latitude coordinates) and the corresponding location on the map, the displayed on the LCD monitor. In the "self-navigation" function, the system automatically searches for the best way to guide the driver with clear voice messages using map data in a storage device of the interior mirror so as to realize a GPS navigation function.
  • The object of the invention is to improve the display of navigation instructions in a motor vehicle according to the preamble of claim 1 and in a method according to the preamble of claim 7.
  • This object is achieved by a motor vehicle according to claim 1 and a method according to claim 7. Further embodiments are described in the subclaims.
  • The invention proposes according to a first aspect, a motor vehicle, comprising
    • A navigation device that can generate a first group and a second group of navigation instructions;
    • A rearview mirror comprising a navigation instruction display device; in which
    • - The display device is connected to the navigation device;
    • - The rearview mirror is an exterior mirror;
    • - The display device can display at least the first group.
  • In this proposed motor vehicle, therefore, a connection between the navigation device and the exterior mirror is produced, so that at least the first group is transmitted before navigation instructions from the navigation device to the display device of the exterior mirror and displayed there. As a result, the display for the transmitted navigation instructions by the navigation device can be omitted, so that its display can be relieved. This can be done automatically as needed and / or at the request of the driver. In addition, the safety is increased because the driver by looking at the wing mirror at the same time the traffic on the corresponding motor vehicle side next to him in the eye and he does not have to look at the navigation device in the interior to view the navigation instructions. The navigation instructions are preferably placed on the exterior mirror in such a way that the field of view detectable by the exterior mirror remains clearly visible.
  • The exterior mirror is preferably arranged on the driver side, preferably at least one further exterior mirror is provided, which is arranged, for example, on the passenger side. The display device may be configured as desired in any manner and, for example, display the first group, but not the second group or display, for example, the first group and the second group.
  • The navigation device can be configured as desired in any manner and, for example, display the second group, but not the first group or display, for example, the second group and the first group.
  • It can be provided that
    • - The navigation device can generate position information;
    • - The navigation device can display at least the second group and the position information.
  • The position information may include, for example, parts of a road map.
  • It may be provided that the navigation device is formed separately from the exterior mirror and arranged in the interior of the motor vehicle.
  • It can be provided that the proposed motor vehicle further comprises
    • A lane change assistant capable of generating lane change indications;
    • - The display device and / or the navigation device is connected to the lane change assistant and can display at least part of the lane change instructions.
  • Then it can be provided that the lane change indications comprise color symbols and / or navigation arrows with different colors.
  • For example, the driver obtains a color logic in which, for example, a red color symbol or a red navigation arrow indicates that there is an obstacle in the direction suggested by the navigation instruction, and a green color symbol or a green navigation arrow indicates that in this suggested direction free travel is possible, the information as to whether he can propose without hesitation the direction proposal or not. This color logic can be transmitted as needed by the lane change assistant on the display device and / or the navigation device and displayed there suitable.
  • It can be provided that the first group comprises navigation arrows.
  • The navigation arrows of the first group can preferably be combined with the lane change indications via a color logic, for example via the color logic explained above. Alternatively or additionally, for example via a fill level of a navigation arrow and / or a fill level of a separate symbol, for example a rectangle, next to the navigation arrow the distance still to be covered are displayed until the driver has to follow the request represented by the navigation arrow.
  • The invention proposes, according to a second aspect, a method for displaying navigation instructions in a motor vehicle, in particular in one of the proposed motor vehicles, wherein
    • A first group and a second group of navigation instructions are generated;
    • - Navigation instructions are displayed with a rearview mirror;
    • - The rearview mirror is an exterior mirror;
    • - At least the first group with the exterior mirror is displayed.
  • It can be provided that
    • - position information is generated;
    • - At least the second group and the position information are displayed with a navigation device.
  • It can be provided that
    • - lane change instructions are generated;
    • - At least a portion of the lane change instructions are displayed with the exterior mirror and / or the navigation device.
  • Then it can be provided that the lane change indications comprise color symbols and / or navigation arrows with different colors.
  • It can be provided that the first group comprises navigation arrows.
  • The above comments on the proposed motor vehicles apply analogously to the proposed method.
  • Embodiments of the invention will now be described by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings. However, the individual features resulting therefrom are not limited to the individual embodiments, but can be combined with individual features described above and / or with individual features of other embodiments. The details in the drawings are to be interpreted as illustrative, but not restrictive.
